The Government can’t continue to tinker round the edges on surveillance

by burylibdems on 31 January, 2018

After yet another court defeat for the Government on mass surveillance, it’s time for them to overhaul the system to put protecting our freedoms & civil liberties at its heart, says Ed Davey MP:

The UK’s surveillance regime has once again been declared unlawful by the courts.

What we need is an overhaul of the system that puts protecting freedoms & civil liberties at its very core.

The Government cannot simply tinker around the edges and hope for a different result.

Liberal Democrats believe we can be safe and secure by ensuring surveillance is targeted and suspicion-led.

What we need is for our police and intelligence services to be given the resources and money they need to do their job, not endless new laws.
